My name is Jing Gao, and I recently earned a Master of Architecture in Sustainability from the University of Texas at Austin. Eager to learn more, my objective is to obtain an Entry level Architect position in a creative environment that will improve my design skill and push me to grow as a professional.
More than 4 years of work experience and 10 years of architectural education equip me with the ability to translate phenomenal ideas into evocative diagrams, compelling representations and fully developed construction drawing sets. I possess impeccable technical and computer skills with advanced knowledge of Auto CAD, Microsoft Office, Adobe, 3D modeling and other graphics communication programs. I can bring a strong ethic of sustainability to my work and possess the skills to assist in evaluating energy performance through energy modeling. I am able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and ensure the work is produced at the highest level. My attention to detail and excellent problem-solving skills ensure that every project I work on is done accurately and to the highest possible standard. My communication skills and positive attitude make me an effective communicator with all clients I work with.
I am excited about the chance of working for you as I have admired the company since I saw many elegant projects you have done towards sustainability. Sustainable strategies have been carefully integrated into the design process in an artful way, resulting in a rich response to the unique site context. My enclosed resume clearly demonstrates my interest in design, sustainability and the way in which my skills and experiences are compatible with this role. I look forward to the opportunity of discussing my application with you further and how I can significantly contribute to the ongoing success of your company.
